Sixties Legends THE SMALL FACES Released Their Highly Influential Psychedelic Album ‘ODGEN’S NUT GONE FLAKE’ 50 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

22 May 2018

Band: THE SMALL FACES

Album: ODGEN’S NUT GONE FLAKE – the band’s third LP

Released: 24 May 1968 – 50 years ago

Note: “The title and the design of the distinctive packaging was a parody of Ogden’s Nut-brown Flake, a brand of tobacco that was produced in Liverpool from 1899 onwards by Thomas Ogden.”

THE GUARDIAN said: ” ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’ caused both delight and confusion with
its simultaneous celebration of a Technicolor flanged trip and old-fashioned knees-up, folk balladry and proto-heavy metal. It influenced Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene and Blur, spawned prog-rock, hard rock, heavy metal and punk rock. By then, ‘Happiness Stan’ had
been unmasked as a lunatic and his creators were well and truly gone.
